It's been approximately four months since we last heard anything from Opera regarding their new Opera Mini 5 beta. At the time of release, Opera Mini 5 got off to a bit of a rocky start for some users after having looked at all the comments on the announcement post. This time around, beta 2 has been released andwhile the verdict is not out as of yet for the majority of users. I, myself am already having some issues with it on my BlackBerry Bold 9700 where it does not recognize the trackpad when being used as the "enter" key. You have to physically use the real enter in order to get it to register. In all fairness though, Opera did advise me that the 9700 was an untested device and may not work right.
Opera Mini 5 beta 2 can be downloaded via your BlackBerry browser by heading to http://m.opera.com/next should you decide to grab it, be sure to leave some comments and let us know how it's working out for you.
